50/50 is supposedly good to -35 before gelling occurs with freezing just below that. Hope your thermometer was accurate.

Wow, -32 would be brutal.  Only saw about -12 here, but the buggy was inside.  I have reservations but the pickings were slim when I made them.  I spoke with sandsavior (JC) the other day, he is hoping to come down for some sand time.  He had shoulder surgery, so has been laid up for a while.  Starts rehab this month.

Thermometer here don’t have - on them, and riots in street begin at 32*.
Sadly life intrudes in vacation again. Too many other logs on fire.

Oh and not enough antifreeze does bad things. Oh how I know.

i looked underneath the rail and just saw a few oil drops. i have never been able to stop 100% of the drips on any ford!   i will have to get the cover off and check the water level to know for sure. was nice there was no green slick down the floor though! -32* is no joke and pretty rare for ambient temps. windchill isnt a concern and we do commonly see -25 to -40* with wind chill. thats the coldest 2 or 3 weeks of winter though, doesnt last long.  thank the good lord we didnt get any real wind while it was -32* !! that wouldnve been brutal!

carl, get that rail all fixed and prepped. you wont even recognize the place when you finally make it back lol

drove it up to the garage yesterday. best oil psi i have ever seen ..... on cold start.  missed the sound of that turbo at cold start high idle!!   need to clean it, change the oil and address the exh gasket issue somehow. i have a few things to do to the truck as well. still had the green stuff in it. i normally mix it 50/50% but i couldnNt remember if i topped it off a couple times with water.

I found a spot for the trip, just not sure if I can get the time off to do it. Gunna have to stop by the DS compound and check on the busa this week, I am confident my antifreeze held up through the engineered blast freezer event, just not sure about my water heater! What is rv antifreeze good for??

I'm getting my rail ready.  We took the M/H out last weekend so it all works good.  This is what happens to the timing covers when you don't tighten the header nuts.
